[lug] setting stickyness across sessions

I'm stuck using gnome at my workstation at work (I've been using AfterStep
elsewhere, but it seems to lock up my workstation).

One of the features that I liked about AfterStep is that I could define default
behavior for a window class.  For example, we use gaim a lot.  I could define a
"Style" that set anything with a resource name of Gaim to be Sticky.  So gaim
would show up on all of my desktops by default.

With gnome (redhat 8.0), if I want that same behavior, I have to remember to
select the "Put on all Workspaces" from the dropdown each time I log in.  I also
have to open up all associated windows and do the same for them.  I also have to
leave all those windows open all the time.  This is a hassle.

Now for the question, does anyone know how to tell gnome "This application and
all of its windows should default to sticky behavior" and have gnome remember
after I log out?
